    The rent is to damn high!

    • Honestly, I was expecting higher because of the square footage and amenities. Odd how they’re saying it’s the only studio in the entire building? What was the logic behind that?

  • Seems like a pretty good price, relative to what you’ll find in DC. This studio is larger (total sq feet) than most 1 bedrooms in this town. It comes with a washer/dryer, patio, and access to a gym and a rooftop deck, and it’s close to metro. This will go fast.

  • Sounds about right. Especially for a large-firm person working during the week in DC but traveling home to the family on the weekends

  • I used to live in that building. Great location. Loved everything about it except the condo board policies. Not terribly renter-friendly.

  • No, I think that is way overpriced for that area ( in the middle of a business district not an entertainment distinct). And it looks like the private patio appears to be a shared patio with several other units – which renders it worthless as there is no privacy.

  • “Private patio” looks like a pen in an upscale dog boarding facility.

  • I actually think it’s too low. Maybe I’ll take it…dang.

  • That seems really cheap, considering the square footage, amenities, and location. And DC is small enough that I disagree that being at K and 12th is too business-ish a location to be good.
    Fair market value would be $4-500 more, I’d say.

  • I think it’d be weird to live on K Street. Nothing is open after like 7 pm and it starts to get skettttch around here.

    • sketch at 11th and K?? You have a low bar for “sketch” then.

      • Have you actually been here late at night? And before you answer “yes,” make sure your wife isn’t near the computer. The area is a well-known refuge of hookers which, yes, qualifies it as sketch in my book.

          I’ve been there many times late at night, walking back to my car or bike at work (12th & K) after a Capitals game or dinner out. It seems less sketch than most of Petworth and Columbia Heights (where I live).

          Can’t speak for the wee hours like post-midnight, but it’s fine at 7 pm through at least 11pm in my experience.

    • It may not be sketch, but it’s certainly boring. Perhaps they assume when City Center opens it’ll become a more interesting neighborhood. I doubt it. Regardless of square footage, there is also something to be said for walls. It’s a studio. $1700 for a studio in that neighborhood seems steep. It’s a far less functional 675 square feet than a one bedroom.

  • Decent location, probably for a slightly older corporate type maybe pied a terre situation.

  • I call bs on 657 square feet. The living space is 22×22 (=484). No way there is 200 sq feet tied up in the hall and bathroom.
